    Peggy and Ronnie, so sorry to hear about Ricky. I remember when he was born and you, Peggy, got on the bus and told everyone about your baby brother, Ricky. May God’s grace carry you through this difficult time.

    Ricky, there are so many memories with you, I have no idea where to begin my friend.i think every day of something from our days at Overnite, Christmas parties, turkey shoots, and camping trips, especially Rudds creek, in the pouring 4th of July rain, and there was 6″ of water in the tent at 3AM. Our prayers are with your family and I’ll miss our little “facebook” chats. RIP friend, God bless.
